One, the rental companies in PR may invalidate your insurance if you take the car off island. Two, the cargo ferry is mostly that - for cargo. If a cargo truck misses the ferry, it gets priority on the next ferry which means cars get bumped. That's if you can even get a reservation on the day you wish (the locals take up the other spots with their errand runs). In my opinion, it's not worth the risk of missing the special time in Culebra.
Do you need a car on Culebra? In my opinion, yes, if you want to explore the island to its fullest. You can stay in town and be perfectly happy. You can walk to most restaurants and Melones Beach (but it is a longish walk), and the publicos will take you to Flamenco Beach during the day, but if you want to go to Zoni or Punta Soldado or out to eat at Bahia Marina or Club Seabourne, a car is the best option.
